Today we took the kids to Elbow Falls...the place where I proposed to Bonny, asking her to be my wife and begin a family with me. Five years later and our family has doubled in size. It was pretty cool to share this spot with our kids, eventhough they probably won't remember it. Hopefully we'll be able to visit it again when they are older and share the story of how our family came to be.
I love Elbow Falls because of what it means to our family, but also because of what it means for my faith. When I have the chance to enjoy nature, specifically water (running rivers, falls, or the ocean), I find myself drawn to the heart of my Father. There is some sort of deep connection and heart's cry that I experience in these type of settings. I absolutely love it!!
I think each of us has these types of things that propel us forward and inward in our relationship with God. I'd love to hear what some of these things for each of you!!
